Atchison feels affects of extreme cold

(KAIR)--On Monday, Kansas Governor Laura Kelly issued a State of Disaster Emergency due to the extreme conditions, with residents across the area being urged to continue conserving energy as the rolling blackouts continue.

Some local residents, commenting on Evergy’s latest social media post, as shared by the City of Atchison, report experiencing long outages Tuesday morning, with some lasting upwards of 3 hours, according to comments.

A release from the City of Atchison Tuesday said the cold temperatures also mean expected delays in municipal trash and recycling collections for the early portion of the week, with solid waste facilities shut down by the winter weather.

According to the City, no recycling will be collected today, with all collection vehicles focused on regular trash pickups. However, the City does not expect Tuesday’s route to be completed, but says pickups will continue to be made throughout the day until collection vehicles are full.
Locations unable to be collected are being noted, and that will be done after trucks are able to be emptied.

With residents asked to have refuse collection carts placed curbside by 7 am each day this week until the collection service is back on schedule, the City said it’s “possible that delays could last a few days,” although it’s hoped the refuse collection schedule will be caught up by Wednesday.

Below are tips for staying warm provided by the National Weather Service.
